About the artist
 
Walter B. Myers was born in 1958 in Indiana in the USA and now lives near Chicago. He is a freelance web designer and computer graphics artist, in addition to whatever other gigs he can drum up. Walter is an artist member of the International Association of Astronomical Artists (IAAA).

Ever since Walter was old enough to hold a pencil, he's been attempting to render images of space ships and dinosaurs. In 1982 Walter acquired my first programmable computer: a Timex Sinclair 1000, with 2KB of onboard RAM, upgradeable to a whopping 16KB. At $100, it was the least expensive retail computer available. Connected to a black & white television, one could program "reasonably" dynamic graphics using its built-in BASIC interpreter, but its capacity was easily topped out. Despite the 1000's limitations, Walter found that it was easier to draw a straight line with a computer than with a pencil, and that's how he became enamored by the power of computer graphics.

Walter's dabbled in computer graphics ever since. As he already has a website dedicated to space art, this site is home to Walter's other dabbles...er doodles... If you like something, let Walter know. High resolution versions of these graphics are available either as prints or downloads.
